    You need cultural isolation to produce culturally 'pure' music otherwise it will always be part of a wider conversation and exchange of influence. These are the contexts we are embedded in. Even if I was to make a music somehow miraculously free of American influence for instance, that very lack would be a kind of comnent on American influence. It's already happened, as corpse says, there's no going back unless there is a war

    This does bring up the question of why it is (if, indeed, it is) white people haven't come up with any great popular music forms? Including the white working class. Is it just because the lens through which we view music is inexorably tied up with black music?

    oi luke, that's way too all or nothing.

    of course uk drill owes from chopin and yellow mahic orchestra, etc. but it's monocultural when compared to garage or jungle, in a way that current racially integrated music in the uk isn't.

    white innovation throughout the 20th century was based on incorporating black influences into something white. when rock died we no longer had that something white. we've got nothing to fuse with migos or harlem spartan influences like post-punks were able to do with funk, reggae and disco.

    i could explain, but i feel like it'd ruin some of the mystique.

    I think I see what you're saying. What are you supposed to do? What context is there for you. There isn't one. But would you not prefer it if the context was an inclusive junglist style one rather than something as exclusively white as a Millwall pub on matchday?

    Even with a bally and black Nike gloves there's not an obvious place for you in drill, I accept that.

    We all know you're a genius musician and that you don't know what music to make. We all know you are going to save us by inventing the new genre. These are pressing questions for you. We have faith that you will find the answers
